Right before our eyes, the block of West Broadway between Dorchester St and F is transforming into one of the most sought after blocks in our neighborhood. Over the last 5 years, it’s gone from dollar stores and a shuttered cinema to new restaurants, a coffee shop and fitness studio and lots of luxury condos on the horizon.
And now the a new project has been proposed with the Boston Planning and Development Agency for the buildings at 457-469 West Broadway (The Dollar Store, Nick’s House of Pizza, Naning Wok and Natural Nails). The project will replace the three commercial buildings with a five story development with 44 units and 48 parking spots. On the ground-floor would be nearly 14,000 square feet of commercial space.
According to the Boston Herald, the units will be one- and two-bedroom but the developer hasn’t decided if they’ll be rentals or condos. The roof will feature 2,700 square feet of common space with synthetic lawn, dog walk and “pet relief” area. There will also be a seating and dining area too.
The developer for this project – the same developer that wants to build at 463 West Broadway is part of the team that wants to replace the Gulf station at 87-93 West Broadway.
New future developments for that block also include the old Broadway Movie Theater and the old Schubert’s/Perkins Supply/Dunkin Donuts building.
